Twelve horses booked their place in the final of the 2015 edition of the prestigious Tazza l-Kbira Championship for class Premier trotters on a long distance of 2640m. The two semi final races from these championships were held Sunday afternoon at the Marsa Racetrack and formed part of the 15th meeting of the season which consisted of eight races all for trotters. Vejby Boom and Quetzal De Brix prevailed in Sunday’s major events.

Ten horses took part in the first class Premier semi final. A keen tussle between five trotters developed midway through the final straight of this major race. It was Swedish Vejby Boom (Carl Caruana) which gained its first win of the year by half length from Quesito d’Or (Frencu Cassar) and Pat De Fontaine (Noel Baldacchino). Qui Sait (Rodney Gatt), Quito De Neret (Michael Ellul) and Cloria Victis (Julian Farrugia) also qualified for the final stage of this championship. Vejby Boom clocked an average time of 1.15.5” per kilometer.

French Quetzal De Brix (Charles Camilleri) led all the way during the 2640m distance of the second class Premier semi final. This trotter past the post first easily by a length from Pedro Vici (Johan Axisa) and Quebir De L’Aube (Clint Vassallo). Quorum Quick (Brian Zammit), High Stage (Marco Refalo) and Wee Catch Diamond (Julian Farrugia) were the last horses to make it for the final stage of the Tazza l-Kbira Championship. Quetzal De Brix obtained its first win in Malta in an impressive average time of 1.14.9” per kilometer.

Sunday’s card also included three races for class Gold trotters on a short distance of 2140m. In the first class Gold race, the early leader Rumeur (Rodney Gatt) ran out of steam midway through the final straight and was overtaken by another mare, the Italian Mission Di Poggio (Charles Camilleri). The latter secured its first win in Malta with Signe (James Carabott) and French newcomer Roseau Du Hamel (Paul Galea) following home in that order.

Zwack (Eric Bezzina) upped its pace around 300m from the finishing line of the second class Gold race. This Swedish trotter also managed to grab its first win on the islands from favourite Madrileno (Mario Fenech). Obelix Molgard (Salvu Vella) and Wies Buitenzorg (Desmar Bonello) also obtained a good place when finishing respectively in third and fourth place.

In the third class Gold race, Quicker Magoda (Kirsten Gialanze’) hit the front with around 500m to go and past the post first but was later disqualified by the racing stewards. The win was awarded to Premier Avril (Mario Fenech) which sealed its first win of the year from Cowboy Party (Chris Cassar), Onyx Lucernais (Jason Cordina) and Indeed Southwind (Kevin Sciberras).

Another meeting at the Marsa Racetrack will be held on Sunday. The first race should start at 1.45pm.
